in time as we did in alameda county in the oakland area of northern california and look at things like red lining maps and racial residential segregation racially restrictive covenants. you can actually map out areas where certain populations notably african-americans but also asian americans and latinos were not allowed to live. and where there was systemic disinvestment from those communities and then you come to today and you can overlay maps of life expectancy on those areas and you see the biggest disparities, actually occurring in the very same place as where there has been 20, 30, 40 years of systemic disinvestment from those communities. so the implication is that segregation has not only economic impacts but it also has profound health impacts that can be manifest in the actual length of people's lives. >> dr. iton, the idea here at current, the reason we're doing this is to bring people's attention to hunger. when you tie them with poverty even more so. tell us about a program that's the fresh works fund progra

on the matter. look at the outcome of prop 30 in california. mr. president, you need to tell speaker boehner that the time for elliptical answers and vagueness is over. tell him if he wants to have a substantive conversation on fiscal negotiations, it's time for him to put his cards on the table face up. ask him to explain exactly which loopholes he would like to close. ask him to explain how those loopholes could be closed without designating the middle class. tell him the time for specifics is now. mr. president, it's time to announce specifics. start with the capital gains rate. make it clear this is an essential part of any deal. capital gains should be taxed as ordinary income. there should be no difference. mr. president. it's time to be tough. that's my view. >> eliot: it was a break up letter read around the world. and it made one former wall street insider greg smith a 12-year veteran and vice president at goldman sachs a household name. in a scathing op-ed published in new york sometimes. while they denied the characterization, and many continue to question smith's motives in going
